Science of SKIN


As the largest organ of the body, the skin is a filter and barrier. It provides protection from various environmental elements—temperature, bacteria, chemicals, the sun, and more.

The skin is a collection of proteins, fats, and peptides that provide strength and stability. The main components of the skin are:

collagen

Collagen

An amino acid that makes up the majority of protein found in your skin

lipids

Lipids

The natural ‘mortar’ that helps lock in moisture and bind the cells together

peptides

Peptides

A chains of amino acids that signal our cells to let them know how to function

elastin

Elastin

a protein that forms elastic connective tissue, found in the dermis

Keratin

Keratin

A key structural protein that makes up the outermost layer of the skin

The skin is made up of three main layers
